The publication we're providing to American and different English­ conversing readers is a overview of the paintings at the electron struc­ ture of parts, alloys, and compounds, which was once begun again within the fifties. This paintings steadily grew right into a procedure of principles at the electron constitution of condensed topic that is referred to now because the configurational version. This version is predicated at the assumption of the preferential formation of the main solid configurations of the localized va­ lence electrons in condensed subject. The life of those sturdy configurations and the trade of electrons with the de­ localized (collective-state) subsystem determines these prop­ erties that are relating to the electron constitution. The conclu­ sions which might be drawn from the purposes of the configura­ tional version are just qualitative yet they clarify particularly sincerely the character of varied homes of condensed subject, and they're precious within the look for fabrics with designated houses. the yankee variation has been corrected and supplemented in lots of minor respects. in addition, the chance was once taken to revise completely the part at the basics of the configura­ tional version within the mild of the newest theoretical advancements. different components of the ebook were shortened to put off fabric which isn't of basic value or has no longer but been de­ veloped sufficiently fully.

28 CHAPTER I. CONFIGURATIONAL MODEL OF SOLIDS The energy stability of the sXpY configurations increases with decreasing values of the principal quantwn nwnber of the sp valence electrons. Therefore, the probability of the s - p transitions is particularly high for berylliwn and the s2 ~ sp equilibrium should shift to the right when the temperature is raised because of the somewhat higher energy stability of the sp configuration compared with the stability of the s2 states. Since the s2 states govern the metallic properties and the sp configurations are responsible for nonmetallic properties, we find that beryllium exhibits both types of property.

This is a consequence of the fact that the s - p transitions are allowed and the S2 configurations can be converted to the sp states, which are typical of nonmetals. 28 CHAPTER I.
